People across Banburyshire can support the work of the Royal Voluntary Service by simply taking a break.

The charity has launched its Great Brew Break campaign to help fund the services it provides for older people.

“The Great Brew Break is a great excuse to get together with friends, family, neighbours and colleagues for a well-earned break, as well as helping the Royal Voluntary Service give practical help to older people in the community,” said Lynda Moore, service manager of the charity’s Cornhill Centre in Castle Street, Banbury.

“All monies raised in Oxfordshire will go to help fund the services, centres and social and lunch clubs we run in the county.

“As a charity that receives no direct government funding, the Royal Voluntary Service relies on donations, grants, gifts in wills and money raised through events like this.”

Great Brew Break events taking place at the Cornhill Centre include a cake sale on Tuesday, April 28, from 10am to 2pm, a tea cosy silent auction, which ends on Thursday, April 30, and a car boot and craft sale on Saturday, May 2, from 10am to 3pm.
